Introduction: The purpose of the experiment was to model the quality of the air when certain environmental conditions exist in an enclosed area. To model the effects, a computer program was used which simulates air flow rates in the enclosure, as well as many other factors contributing to the dispersion of air pollutant molecules in the air. The first set of tests deal with a freshly waxed floor emitting vapors, and the second set of tests model a chemical spill. Summary of the Model: The model enclosure consisted of three consecutive rooms, each with its own unique airflow pattern. The kitchen, located on one end of the “house”, had the only exit point for air inside the house, and also allowed air from the outside to enter the house. The hall, located between the two end rooms had an airflow that predominantly exited to the kitchen, and had no direct connection to outside airflow. The bedroom, located on the side of the house opposite the kitchen, allowed air to flow into the house, but did not allow air to exit, and also moved air into the hall. Discussion, Graphs and Data: In Modeling Problem A, the chemical concentration in the air was greatly decreased by doubling the airflow through the house. More specifically, the average peak concentration was
